Running a business can be complicated, but at the end of the day most companies do best when they give customers what they want. That’s often hard to accomplish in e-commerce since you may never have a single face-to-face interaction with a customer.

Luckily, there are various tools you can use to help in this regard, and Whop offers powerful analytics to help you best understand what your customers are doing and what they want via Google Analytics.

❓ What is Google Analytics?

Google Analytics is a website traffic analysis tool that gives you real-time data when it comes to customer actions and analyzes the behavior of your site’s users. As you might imagine, this lets you understand how your website or e-commerce store is being used by visitors, and it gives you plenty of highly actionable insights.

Marketers find Google Analytics invaluable for its ability to provide website and traffic data, but one of the stand-out features of Google Analytics is that it’s completely free to use. It’s also cloud-based, meaning that neither you nor your customers will need to have any extra hardware or software.

It’s important to note that, as of July 2023, Google Analytics 4 (often shortened to GA4) has taken over as the flagship Google Analytics product. If you were using Universal Analytics before, you’ll have to make the switch since UA isn’t processing website data any longer.

🤔 How Can Google Analytics Help You?

Data is one of the most precious commodities out there today, and harnessing its power is a good way to ensure your business doesn’t get left behind. Google Analytics can help you make data-driven business decisions to improve your e-commerce enterprise in the smartest ways possible.

From seeing which marketing channels are bringing in the most users, to learning about your customer demographics and optimizing conversion, Google Analytics is well worth linking to Whop since it can drastically improve your bottom line.

📊 How to Set Up a Google Analytics Account

As with many Google products, getting set up with Google Analytics is relatively simple so let’s dive right in.

#1. Create a Google Account

The first step is a skippable one if you already have a Google account. If you don’t, though, you’ll need a Google account before you can get started with Google Analytics. Just head to the Google homepage and hit the button on the top right to get off the ground. A Google account also gives you a great cloud-based email service and access to the entirety of Google’s suite of products and services.

#2. Head to Google Analytics

Now that you have a Google account, you can navigate to the Google Analytics page and hit the ‘Start Measuring’ button.

#3. Create Google Analytics Account Name

You’ll immediately be prompted to create an account name for Google Analytics. While it’s easy to skip through this step without too much thought, it’s a good idea to consider it carefully—using your brand name here might be the best way to go.

#4. Insert Your Property Details

The ‘Property Name’ that Google Analytics asks for next can be anything you choose to help you organise and remember what you are tracking. You can give it a name like "Whop" or simply use the URL of the website that you wish to track. You will also have to specify your reporting time zone and preferred currency.

#5. Input Business Information

Since Google Analytics is a business-specific tool, Google will attempt to tailor your Analytics experience to your company via the settings you choose in this section.

In the example above we have selected 'Online Community' and 'Small (1-10 employees).

#6. Set Up Data Stream

Now that you’re mostly done with the setup of Google Analytics itself, it’s important to get certain key steps out of the way. First among these is your Data Stream, meaning a source of data that Google Analytics can read and crunch for you. Simply select your account and the relevant Property, then hit ‘Data Streams’ to configure it for your website or app.

#7. Your Measurement ID (a.k.a. Google Analytics Tracking ID)

After setting up your Data Stream, you now have access to your Measurement ID. This is the most important thing when it comes to getting Google Analytics working with Whop, and you’ll need this code for tagging. To retrieve it, go to the Admin section of your Google Analytics account and click Data Streams under the Property column.

Once you’re done setting up your Google Analytics account and linking it with your Whop Business Dashboard, there are still a few things you may want to do in order to make the most of this free tool. Here are some of them:

#1. Grant Your Team Access

If you’ve got partners in your enterprise or have employees working for you, you might want to ensure that the rest of your crew have access to your Google Analytics data.
